I have been in cosmetology school for 5 weeks now. It is insane. I Love it. I have learned so much in the last 5 weeks. I am in OR a.k.a. Orientation which means we have been taking non-stop notes the whole time. It really is so much to handle but I am so excited for when i actually get to stop taking notes and get out on the floor and do hair. So far we've learned 3 main styles of hair cuts in three shapes. Round, square, and triangular; layers, graduated and one length. Cutting hair is so hard. You have to learn all the techniques and it is alot more complicated then you could ever imagine. Cutting is probably the hardest part for me. I have cut three peoples hair. My mom, MaKell, and Debbie. We've also learned pedicures, manicures, scalp treatments, how to wrap perms, how to weave color, updoes, curls, braids, color application, waxing and a bunch of other stuff. We have a guest artist every wednesday who is usually a nail artist or someone who owns a salon. But this week the extension lady from Foxi Hair came and gave everyone in the class one extension of whichever bright color they chose. Mine is hot pink. It is all so crazy but there are so many amazing things you can do. I can't wait to work on everyones hair, it is really going to be so much fun for me. So you all get ready to do something crazy! I'll keep you posted!

I learned how to post to my blog from my phone. This is so awesome! What is technology coming to? Its so crazy!

So a couple of weeks ago I was asked to
Prom! I came home from school to find a lifesize cardboard cut out of Belle waiting to greet me in my room. There was a carraige made out of cardboard that Dalt had put a picture of us in. There were "Beauty and the Beast" Mints, balloons with Belle on them, and tiaras all over. Dalt left big pink envelopes all over. Each one had one a card shaped like a crown inside it and each had one word. The last envelope was covered in Duct Tape and I had to cut it open to get the card out. The words said "Will You Go To Prom With Me Princess?" It was so cute. I am so excited to go on May 2nd!

Choir Tour!!

Around the middle of March I got to go on choir tour with the Pleasant Grove High Chamber Choir. We Went to California for 5 days. We stayed just outside Anaheim in a town called Downy at the Embassy Suites Hotel. It was so amazing. It had an indoor stream and waterfall, an awesome made to order breakfast every morning, and the People there were wonderful. We had such an awesome stay there. It was so nice. They day we got there we went to The Man's Chinese Theater and the Kodak Theater. It was so awesome. I found John Wayne's foot prints. We also got to go to Sea World and Disney Land while we were in California. I ALMOST got to kiss a seal! it was so awesome! He was so close! it was so cute. I also found the prettiest Clydesdale ever. He was pulling the trolley around Disney Land. I had so much fun in Cali. It was awesome and I can't wait to go back!

Comb Wash

This week I went on my dad’s annual work mule trip. Every year he and his partner take all their employees, customers, and friends on a weeklong mule ride to Comb Wash just outside of Blanding, Utah. This year there were more than 40 people there. Most had mules but there are a couple people who bring horses like my Uncle West. We always camp in the same spot. Our camp spot has corrals that are built out of old cedar wood that we put some of the animals in. This year there were so many that some people had to take panels and make their own pens.

At the beginning of each day, about 7:00 a.m., we meet at the food tent. We say the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag posted atop the tent, and then we start breakfast, usually cold cereal and fruit. After breakfast, around 8:00 we saddle up and leave camp around 8:30. Since there are so many people, my dad takes half and his business partner takes the other half on different rides. We ride mostly in and around Fish Creek Canyon which also splits off into Owl Creek Canyon. The scenery is beautiful. It was 60-70 degrees the whole time we were there. It would have been 80 without the wind chill. Our favorite way to ride is to get ourselves ledged in somewhere at the top of the canyon and find a way to the bottom. That is our goal every day. We never follow the trails, we make our own. If we find a good jumping spot along the way, we stop for a while and take pictures (from several angles) of whoever wants to try. There are several of these a day. We stop for lunch somewhere around 1:00. We just find a nice sunny spot out of the wind and tie up to a cedar tree. We usually spend about an hour at the lunch spot visiting and eating. After lunch we ride a little further, and then we have to head back to camp. We never ride back the same we came if we can help it. We love to make loops so we don’t have to go the same way twice in one

day. We reach camp around 5:30. Once back to camp, we unsaddle, let the mules roll and get cleaned up. Baby wipes are a lifesaver from all the red dirt. In years passed my dad and his partner were the ones who made dinner after we got back, but this year we had camp cooks. They came just to cook for us so dinner was ready everyday when we got back. We had some awesome meals. Lasagna, Enchiladas, Beef and Pork roast, Stew, and Baked beans were on the menu this year all made in a Dutch oven. We always have tons of food always accompanied by dessert; Pie, Cream Cheese Brownies, Chocolate Cake, and Rice Crispie Treats. After everyone is done eating, we go and sit around the fire while someone plays songs on the guitar and sings, tells cowboy poetry, or just tells stories and talk. We sit in chairs real close to the fire or stand and spin like a rotisserie chicken to keep warm. Bed time is anywhere from 8:00-12:00 (whenever you decide to go). You can’t beat the night sky in Comb Wash; there’s not a cloud in it and you can see every star.

All in all we had a blast. It was awesome, the weather was nice and the people were great. We saw some cool ruins and had a really good time. I can’t wait until I get to go back and do it all again next year.

Valentines Day- 2 Years Together

Valentines Day this year was so amazing. Dalton and I have now been together over two years. I's so crazy! So much has happened in two years. So he came over and picked me up around 7 o clock. He looked so handsome. He surprised me and took me to Goodwood for dinner. When we pulled up outside the restraunt, He pulled out a bag from Argentos jewelry store in the mall. There were two little boxes in it, and inside the first box I pulled out was the most gorgeous ring. The next box I pulled out had a necklace with a beautiful pendant on it. They were so pretty! He spoils me way to much. So he helped me put on my necklace then we went in. The food was so good. Dalt got a steak and I got chicken strips. Everything we had there was really good. then after we got done there, we went back to my house, I gave Dalt his gifts and we watched a movie. We watched Nights in Rodanthe. It was very good. Valentines Day was so amazing and I had such a great time. Thanks Dalt!
